    I worked at Target full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my time at Target. The people (most of them) were awesome and supportive, the pay was decent for a college student, and there were almost always cool stuff for the employees in the break room like sweets or sometimes catered food during holiday hours. You’ll eventually get accustomed to all the people in the store and start to indirectly get to know each other. I worked with the Starbucks/Deli/Bakery/Meat/Produce/...

    Cons

    1. Sink or swim approach to training. You’re pretty much thrust in and learn through trial and error, there isn’t an extended period of training. 2. The closing shift in the deli is the most labor intensive, far more than the opening shift, and I almost always had to close alone and would frequently get scheduled to open at 5:30 AM the following day after closing so I would only get about 2-3 hours of good sleep between...

    Advice to Management

    Space the food departments (Starbucks, Deli, Bakery, Meat and Produce) team members to ensure there is always two people at all times, morning to close. Considering these areas require prepping, cleaning, checking hourly food temps, cooking/baking/frying and packaging, QMOS’ing expired or near expired products, slicing meats and cheeses or decorating cakes, rezoning/restocking, and prepping for the next day, and taking...

  3. "Status Quo"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Senior Team Leader, Sales Floor in San Antonio, TX

      I worked at Target full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Moderate salary, that's about it.

      Cons

      No real control of your area. Difficult to actually improve things when you don't control orders or schedules, and rarely work with your team because you are expected to help out in other areas. Every seems content with the status quo and don't feel the need to improve conditions in the store. Compliance is valued more than innovation and work ethic.

      I have been working at Target part-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Whenever you have a good team lead and store lead, Target's a great place to work. The hours are flexible; the corporate culture is agreeable; very LGBTQIA+ friendly; the commitment to $15/hr by 2020 is commendable.

      Cons

      So much of the job is tied to what your leaders allow. My first ETL was a micromanager (and we disagreed on what was really important), and I was miserable. My current ETL trusts me to do my job and allows me to do what I need to do, and my department looks better for it. For retail it's a good place to work, but keep in mind it has the usual downsides of retail.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your sales specialists and brand owners more. We are immersed in our departments, and know more about what each area needs.
